The Secret Pelwecki sniffed out the screen. We can’t see the whole formation, but we’ll presume that there were some Valley Techsters in place over there somewhere to block for the receiver. Like Austin Shuford, The Secret Pelwecki can make magic happen and he just juked his way into the backfield. We get it. Heather Burns strategies imbue the Mudlarks with otherworldly gifts. This is our story.
Okay so the refs didnt see the illegal block by Heather that sprung Shuford loose for the TD. But God almighty we still have more football to play on December 2 people!! How much more can we endure? Every story is like this – just drags on and on until you wanna pull the strip right off the computer screen. Heads in the game, ha. Gil’s head hasnt been in the game since 1982.
And Heather advises Palooka just like the posters said – and he looks like the last one to be pulling on his helmet.
At any rate this season is mercifully drawing to a close. Our song features a sentiment we all share. :)
Marty be like…
So our astute commentariat know what a draw is and also recognize how obvious a choice it is as a counter to a team with blitzing tendencies. Seriously, you guys have been all over it, stripping most of the meat off that bone.
So, I guess now we move on to dissecting the action as described in Shuford’s run. The kindest criticism I can level at it is that two panels are not nearly enough to show me how all this action unfolded without questioning the fundamental logic of geometry and defensive fundamentals. Also, if Austin Shuford was that much of an elusive open field runner, why hasn’t he been more involved in the offense?
Have at it folks.
It could be both I suppose.
Aside from that, I’m rather flabbergasted that Milford’s tactic is to put in a player who has been shown to be unable to compete on the assumption the defense will target her at the expense of their normal assignments, thereby allowing Austin Shuford a clear path to the end zone. However, I have to admit that it certainly seems to have worked.
Today’s strip is a truly frustrating one to review. So much packed into so little space when we’ve wasted days on arcane plot twists. In view of that, I will simply point out that it’s pretty great that we now can all refer to Valley Tech as VT.
Remember how we haven’t seen The Secret Pelwecki in ages? Well, there he is on the way to Valley Tech. He must play a role in Heather’s idea. I hope it’s a good idea. Gil and Kaz can’t generate ideas themselves.
I think we’re caught in some sort of loop here. The coaching staff realizes that Heather Burns is not the answer at TE then they decide on another course of action. That’s when the time loop starts over and the coaches can’t wait to get Heather back on the field. But then again, Gil is saying we’ll try to get you on the field, so he could be a little aware of the previous incremental advance in strategy and maybe he just didn’t remember that Heather doesn’t seem to be all that fixated on playing time so he thinks he has to stroke her ego. There’s just no firm footing here in terms of this plot or the motivation of these characters, so all I can do at this point is cast about for some thread to hold onto. All we have now is that Heather is doing all of the strategic thinking for the football team at this point.
Yeah I got plenty of playing time Friday – been out in the dark almost every day with the sun going down and a truckload of parcels. But back to the story. Trainer Rick leaked Heathers non-injury to Gil, and he will now punish her for this malfeasance by throwing her to the wolves, or whoever theyre playing Friday. Is he teaching her a lesson in integrity or just telling her – if you cant be one of the regular players, then you cant be on the team. No more special treatment Missy.
